Hired following a video audition, Villafane - a Cuban-American singer, dancer and actress from Miami who even attended the same high school as Gloria Estefan - will make her Broadway debut. Her film and television credits include Magic City Memoirs, Los Americans and Hiding, plus the upcoming Hulu series South Beach: Fever and the superhero feature Max Steel.

Segarra has been featured on the New York stage in Dogfight and Lysistrata Jones. His television credits includes Sirens, Chicago PD and The Electric Company, plus guest appearances in Homeland and The Following. He'll also appear in the Judd Apatow comedy Trainwreck.


'On Your Feet!'is based on the real life story of the Estefans, from their beginnings in Cuba to their arrival in the U.S., and their rise to superstardom. Music numbers will include, "Conga," "1-2-3," "Music of My Heart," and "Rhythm is Gonna Get You."

It premieres November 5th, and tickets are on sale now.

Great heart, great mind, amazing spirit - psyched for @onyourfeetbway! #EmilioEstefan #GloriaEstefan
